Two sisters from Terrington St John are continuing their fundraising efforts to attend a scout jamboree that takes place in Korea in 2023.

Sorcha and Caoimhe Friel are part of the 3rd Marshland Scout Group and with support from their mum Victoria have been holding various events to raise money towards the trip.

Both girls are students at Marshland High School and so far have held a coffee morning and a virtual duck race.
